Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
GlobeRanger Corp. announced that it is bringing its market leading cloud-based RFID, M2M and Asset Tracking solution, GR-AWARE Stratus to the Oil and Gas market. This industry is increasingly laden with reporting and tracking policies and mandates imposed by the government. Traditionally, this safety and compliance reporting has largely been a paper process. RFID technology has matured in recent years such that tags, readers, software and cloud services make a compelling case to replace the manual recording and tracking process with an RFID solution. GlobeRanger has deployed its tracking solutions for a large variety of asset types in several industries. George Brody, CEO of GlobeRanger, stated “GlobeRanger’s asset tracking solutions are a tremendous fit in the Oil and Gas industry because this market demands versatility in tagging, data collection, wireless data, software hosting and deployment; all of which are strengths in our offerings.”
GlobeRanger’s initial partner in this market initiative is JPL RFID, a Houston, TX based Oil and Gas Systems Integrator. JPL RFID surveyed the market, evaluated many companies, and concluded that GlobeRanger’s cloud-based offering GR-AWARE Stratus would best serve this market’s unique requirements. The product enables data capture from current and the next generation of devices such as RFID Handheld readers, barcode readers, Fixed RFID Readers, GPS devices and a variety of sensors. Assets are uniquely identified, scanned and attribute data captured (including GPS location) then transmitted via WiFi or cellular. The data is stored in the Cloud so records and reports are always available and deployment is easy. These features allow end customers to move away from paper records and time consuming manual entries while simultaneously increasing accuracy. This makes asset management and regulatory compliance more accurate and efficient for equipment ranging from drilling rigs to refinery equipment.
JPL RFID CEO Jason Pitcock stated, “The oil and gas industry is very advanced in terms of technology. However, regulatory compliance, data collection and asset management is typically done using pen, paper, and spreadsheets. JPL RFID immediately brings our clients into the 21st century with innovative asset tracking/data management solutions, GPS location tracking and mapping, and safety and regulatory compliance with GlobeRanger’s GR-AWARE Stratus. We can design creative work flows and business processes leveraging our collective experience providing logistics services to the oil and gas industry for 20+ years.” He concluded by stating “JPL RFID is leading the oil and gas industry assisting clients with RFID technology and GR-AWARE Stratus.”
